Victims of the theft of their newborn children have denounced to the UN the ” default” by the Church of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and assert that it ” continues to deny its involvement ” in the sale of babies and maintains an ” obstructionist attitude” in court.

As reported this week Enrique Vila ,(es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enrique_Vila) a lawyer for SOS Estate and SOS Babies Stolen , they have been forced to send this letter because the Holy See recently informed the Committee on the Rights of the UN that the Church ” supported and cooperated with the investigation of stolen children in Spain . “
The letter sent to the UN by the victims of the theft of babies born in Spain announced that the Church ” still has not officially apologized to the victims” and ” continues denying their involvement, even indirectly through its members passivity , in these events. ”
The communication states that it is ” completely false that the Church collaborates with justice in the investigation of cases of stolen babies , on the contrary , it maintains an obstructionist and obscurantist attitude in court .”
” Associations have asked for help and a hearing from the Episcopal Conference, Archbishop and the Vatican State itself and His Holiness Pope Francisco several times, and no one has never answered them,” the letter adds .
It also indicates that the Spanish Church ” not only does not recognize the involvement of its members in the sale of babies in the second half of the twentieth century in Spain , but still has not officially apologized to the victims and continues to deny his involvement in these events. ”
They also note that currently , some Spanish religious institutions ” continue violation judgments and refuse to supply data for biological mothers to children, adopted or stolen , who seek to exercise their right to know their origins.”
The letter added that the participation of the Church in the sale of children “was directly on many occasions by nuns and priests who acted as intermediaries or direct agents of the theft, or indirectly , with the silence of the Spanish church authorities and Vatican who knew these practices and remained passive. ”
“Despite the Public Relations and nice words now spoken they still criticize the Vatican , the Church still doies not actively cooperate in the investigation of these crimes and, of course , at least in Spain , the Church still does not provide access to their files for thousands of children adopted or stolen so they can meet their original birth families. ”
According to Vila, the Vatican report submitted to the UN “does not correspond to reality ” and therefore the parents have transmitted a ” counter report ” to the Human Rights Council of the UN, which on 16 February, at the headquarters of the International Organization in Geneva , will oversee the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the child by the Vatican State.
In the letter , Vila says the struggle is to recognize , uphold and defend internationally, ” the right of everyone , especially children , to know their biological origins , and to maintain and respect the family bond .”
Catholic church stole 300.000 babies in Spain
Roman Catholic nurses in Spain, were involved in child trafficking. They stole babies right from the womb of their mothers.
Up to 300,000 Spanish babies were stolen from their parents and sold for adoption by Roman Catholic institutions.
A new BBC documentary reveals baby trafficking in the Roman Catholic Church in Spain. The children were trafficked by a secret network of doctors, nurses, priests and nuns in a widespread practice that began during General Franco’s dictatorship and continued until the early Nineties.
Hundreds of families who had babies taken from Spanish hospitals are now battling for an official government investigation into the scandal.
Several mothers say they were told their first-born children had died during or soon after they gave birth.
But the women, often young and unmarried, were told they could not see the body of the infant or attend their burial. In reality, the babies were sold to childless couples whose devout beliefs and financial security meant that they were seen as more appropriate parents.
Official documents were forged so the adoptive parents’ names were on the infants’ birth certificates.
In many cases it is believed they were unaware that the child they received had been stolen, as they were usually told the birth mother had given them up.
Journalist Katya Adler, who has investigated the scandal, says: ‘
The situation is incredibly sad for thousands of people. There are men and women across Spain whose lives have been turned upside-down by discovering the people they thought were their parents actually bought them for cash. There are also many mothers who have maintained for years that their babies did not die – and were labelled “hysterical” – but are now discovering that their child has probably been alive and brought up by somebody else all this time.’
Experts believe the cases may account for up to 15 per cent of the total adoptions that took place in Spain between 1960 and 1989.
It began as a system for taking children away from families deemed politically dangerous to the regime of General Franco, which began in 1939.
The system continued after the dictator’s death in 1975 as the Catholic church continued to retain a powerful influence on public life, particularly in social services.
It was not until 1987 that the Spanish government, instead of hospitals, began to regulate adoptions.

Víctimas de bebés robados denuncian ante la ONU la obstrucción de la Iglesia española

Según ha informado esta semana Enrique Vila, abogado de SOS Raíces y SOS Bebés Robados, se han visto “obligados” a remitir este escrito porque la Santa Sede informó recientemente a la Comisión de los Derechos del Niño de la ONU de que la Iglesia “apoyaba y colaboraba con la investigación de los niños robados en España”.
En el escrito remitido a la ONU por las víctimas del robo de bebés nacidos en España se comunica que la Iglesia “sigue sin pedir oficialmente perdón a las víctimas” y “negando su implicación, aunque sea indirecta a través de sus miembros o su pasividad, en estos hechos”.
La comunicación manifiesta que es “rotundamente falso que la Iglesia colabore con la justicia en el esclarecimiento de los casos de bebés robados; al contrario, mantienen una actitud obstruccionista y oscurantista en los tribunales”.
“Las asociaciones han pedido ayuda y audiencia a la Conferencia Episcopal, al arzobispado y al propio Estado Vaticano y a Su Santidad el papa Francisco en varias ocasiones, y jamás se les ha contestado”, añade el escrito.
También indica que la Iglesia española “no solo no reconoce la implicación de parte de sus miembros en la trama de compraventa de bebés en la segunda mitad del siglo XX en España, sino que sigue sin pedir oficialmente perdón a las víctimas y sigue negando su implicación en estos hechos”.
Además, señalan que actualmente, algunas instituciones religiosas españolas “siguen incumpliendo las resoluciones judiciales y se niegan a facilitar los datos de las madres biológicas a los hijos, adoptados o robados, que las buscan en el ejercicio de su derecho a conocer sus orígenes”.
En el escrito añaden que la participación de la Iglesia en la trama de compraventa de niños “fue directa en muchas ocasiones a través de monjas y curas que actuaban como intermediarios o agentes directos del robo, o indirecta, con el silencio de las autoridades eclesiales españolas y vaticanas que conocían estas prácticas y permanecían pasivas”.
“Pese a las buenas palabras que ahora utiliza el Estado Vaticano -critican-, la Iglesia sigue sin colaborar activamente en el esclarecimiento de estos hechos delictivos y, por supuesto, al menos en España, la Iglesia sigue sin facilitar el acceso a sus archivos para que miles de adoptados o niños robados puedan conocer sus familias biológicas originarias”.
Según Vila, el informe del Vaticano remitido a la ONU “no responde a la realidad” y por ello han remitido un “contrainforme” al Alto Comisionado de los Derechos Humanos de la ONU, que el próximo 16 de febrero, en la sede de la Organización Internacional en Ginebra, supervisará la aplicación de la Convención sobre los Derechos del niño por parte del Estado Vaticano.
En el escrito, Vila asegura que lucha por que se reconozca, mantenga y defienda a nivel internacional “el derecho de toda persona, y en particular de los niños, a conocer sus orígenes biológicos, y a mantener y respetar el vínculo familiar”.
